Had a very nice meal at Brown's. Ordered fish and chips which was excellent. Large portions and quick service. Sat by a window which overlooked the ocean and Shag Rocks. I'll be back again!

“Excursion around the bay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

It was along wait. The food was not very tasty. The fish was overcooked and the turkey dry. The dessert I ordered was not available because they only had chocolate ice cream. The scenery was spectacular!!!

“Pleasant dinner”

Tasty pan-fried cod with my guilty pleasure, poutine. Both my meal and my wife's were served promptly, and we're exactly what we hoped. Very large portions.

While we were driving the loop we stopped at Brown's for lunch. What a treat. Both the service and the food were excellent.Topping that off was a great view which made the stop that much better.
Thanks.

“great local choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We ate there twice on a recent trip to Nfld, all four of us were impressed both times. Yes the service was slow but it was packed both times we went, mostly by locals. The food was some of the best we had on our two week trip, as far as local cuisine goes. Cod tongues, roast beef, fish and chips were as good as we got anywhere else on the island.
